BTS x Coldplay 'My Universe': Release date, music video and all about Coldtan collab
Fans were pleasantly surprised after BTS and Coldplay announced that they would be getting an official music video for the collab song 'My Universe'
The Coldtan collab is almost here! Fans all over the world were shocked when someone supposedly leaked an audio clip claiming it was from BTS and Coldplay’s collaborative song. It didn’t help when a leading lyrics website added BTS’ name to Coldplay’s upcoming album. It has been almost two years since the legendary British band dropped their last hit album ‘Everyday Life’. And for their latest album ‘Music of the Spheres’ they have indeed roped in the global K-pop group BTS for ‘My Universe’ which will also have a music video.
We got several wholesome interactions between the two before the confirmation like BTS being interviewed by Chris Martin that did nothing to quench the rumors. And a few weeks ago the labels involved ended up confirming that BTS would be featuring in the pre-released single ‘My Universe’ for Coldplay’s album. The two acts even ended up meeting on September 21 and 22 as BTS was in NYC for the 26th UN General Assembly. So, let’s find out everything about the Coldtan collab.

Coldplay announced the collab with BTS by first releasing the album artwork on September 13. The artwork has neon spheres and phases-of-the-moon shapes that play into the title ‘My Universe’ and the album title ‘Music of the Spheres’. They then released a photograph of the two acts together with the song’s preview on TikTok the next day. On September 21, we got a clip similar to the TikTok preview of BTS recording the song with Chris Martin. Now we know that it's footage for the upcoming documentary. And finally, on September 22, they teased the pre-chorus and the chorus of the song with a clip of the lyric video.
Fans couldn’t help but trend ‘My Universe’ and ‘official music video’ as they realized we would be getting a music video for the collab. They made tweets like, “OHMYGOD WE'RE GETTING A LYRIC VIDEO, A DOCUMENTARY, A REMIX, AN ACOUSTIC VERSION AND AN OFFICIAL [email protected]#$>?%#[email protected] WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE,” “There's gonna be official MV for My Universe I'm screamiing,” and “Official MV coming soon….both Coldplay and BTS are in NY right now and BTS said they were busy doing stuff they can’t show right now.” One fan simply added, “Coldtan supremacy.”
